Nicole Holofcener’s ten favorite books

Nicole Holofcener is the director of Enough Said and The Land of Steady Habits. One of her ten favorite books, as shared at Vulture.com:
“Bel Canto,” by Ann Patchett

A surreal world of characters trapped in a house, the book felt more like a dream than a story. I loved it because it was so different from anything else I ever read. I was never particularly interested in opera, but this story swept me away.
Read about the other books on the list.

Bel Canto is among Jenny Shank's top five fabulous works of fiction for musicians, Jeff Somers's top five novels set in a single pressure cooker location, Tatjana Soli's six favorite books that conjure exotic locales, Kathryn Williams's six top novels set in just one place, Dell Villa's top eight books to read when you’re in the mood to cry for days, John Mullen's ten best birthday parties in literature, and Joyce Hackett's top ten musical novels.
